A.H. Dahl and Co. General Store: Westby, WI 1910

Andrew H. Dahl of Westby, WI, who was already running a general store, serving in the Wisconsin legislature, and raising seven children, received an agency agreement from Ford Motor Company in 1911.  Ford Model T's were sold at Andrew's General store, Andrew H. Dahl Co., for $500 each until a new store was built.  At this time two of Andrew's four sons, Harry and Chester, were convinced to run the operation acting as managers, salespeople, and driving instructors.  Ford Motor Company, during the initial years, would transport Model T parts by locomotive, leaving it up to the dealers to assemble them back at their shops.  In addition to selling the car, Ford dealers needed to teach customers to drive this brand new machine.  Dahl expanded to Viroqua, WI and La Crosse in 1911.
